"A Haunting in Connecticut" is based on a chilling true story and charts Carmen Reed's terrifying, real-life encounter with the dark forces of the supernatural.

Carmen Reed’s life has been portrayed in the box office blockbuster movie, “A Haunting in Connecticut”, a film based on her intuitive abilities and, apparently, a haunted house. Her family moves to upstate Connecticut after her son was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. They soon learn that their charming Victorian home has a disturbing history: not only was the house a transformed funeral parlor where inconceivable acts occurred, but the owner's clairvoyant son Jonah served as a demonic messenger, providing a gateway for spiritual entities to crossover.

According to Ideal Event Manage, Carmen knew from almost the beginning of her cognitive life that she was special, an “intuitive”; as she could feel when things were about to happen. Her paternal grandmother had the same feelings, so perhaps it was genetic. And even further back is a Cherokee Shaman and an Indian Princess, so perhaps it is more than just a gift. Perhaps it was predestined that she see a spiritual side of life that only a few can comprehend.
